The Gates of Solstice have opened, but while the Shailmas have summoned the Travelers, King Shrailzhar, too, has gathered his warriors. The King has finally found the portal gate and set a mystifying trap to keep the curse breakers out of his dark land. Getting into Trilleah will test the strength of Judah, Jennifer, and the others; getting back out will require a part of themselves they might not be willing to give.
Caught in a Labyrinth that even the Living Maps overlooked, this might be as far as the Travelers ever get to breaking the curse of Malleana Forest. Once trapped in Shrailzhar's impervious Labyrinth, only one will see the way out. Only one will hear the voice telling the way. Only one will believe the unbelievable. Only one will know that, to move ahead, they must go all the way back.
Will the others follow? Or, will that one have to go alone?
